COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may collect personal information when you:
Creating a Profile: To access and use our services as a home-based business, you will be required to create a business profile on our Website. When you create a business profile, we collect your first and last name, email address, your business name, address, description and photographs, the industry you work in and a password that you create. As a customer looking for a home-based business, you will also be required to create a customer profile to access and use our services. We will collect your first and last name, email address, and a password that you create. We use this information to create and administer your account. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (such as letters, phone calls or email messages). If you become aware of any unauthorized access to or use of your account, you are required to notify us immediately.
Purchases: If you purchase products or services from a home-based business through our Website, we or our third party service providers collect your payment card information (including billing address, credit card number, expiry data and CVV code) in order to process the transaction on behalf of the business.
Referrals: Our Website may permit you to tell others about Homeur or refer a home-based business. This feature requires you to submit your name and email address, as well as the name and email address of the recipient. We do not use the names or email addresses submitted in these circumstances for any other purpose without the consent of you or the email recipient to do so. Please ensure that you only submit email addresses of individuals with whom you have a business, personal or family relationship.
Marketing and other Communications: If you are a home-based business, you may sign-up to receive email marketing communications from us containing special offers, tips on running successful home-based businesses and the latest Homeur updates by providing us with your name, email address and industry you work in. If you are a customer, you may sign-up to receive marketing emails from us containing special offers and recommendations for home-based businesses in your area. You may also sign-up to receive our blog posts by email. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link included at the bottom of each email. Alternatively, you can opt-out of receiving email marketing communications by contacting us at the contact information provided in the “Contact Us” section below. Please note that you may continue to receive transactional or account-related communications from us. For example, if you are a customer, you may receive transactional messages related to confirmations, cancellations, and other updates about your purchase or account. If you are a business owner, you may receive transactional messages necessary to operate your business (e.g. messages regarding your account and new customers, bookings and payments).
Contests and Promotions: When you enter a contest or participate in a promotion, we may collect your name, address, phone number, email address, and other information you provide. We use this information to administer your participation in the contest or promotion.
Surveys and Customer Research: From time to time, we may offer you the opportunity to participate in one of our surveys or other customer research. The information obtained through our surveys and customer research is used in an aggregated, non-personally identifiable form. We use this information to help us understand our customers, to enhance our product and service offerings, promotions and events, and/or to assist in the selection of store locations.
Post a Review: When you post a review about a business, we collect a user name under which your review will be posted. Your review will be made publicly available on the website. Please exercise caution before sharing any personal information.
Employment: In connection with a job application or related inquiry, you may provide us with certain personal information about yourself (such as that contained in a resume, cover letter, or similar employment-related materials). We use this information for the purpose of processing and responding to your application for current and future career opportunities.
Contact Us: When you contact us with a comment, question or complaint through email, telephone, or the contact us form on our Website, you may be asked for information that identifies you, such as your name, email, or telephone number, along with additional information we need to help us promptly answer your question or respond to your comment.
